The Sheffield City Region (SCR) Growth Hub exists to help businesses access the best possible business support. And in these unprecedented times, we are working hard to respond to and support South Yorkshire’s businesses during the Coronavirus pandemic.

The Growth Hub is open and here to help.

The Growth Hub acts as a ‘gateway’ so that your business can access support when you need it the most and within the shortest timeframe.  Our team of specialists offer guidance in the fields of business development and industry support, including innovation, trade and exporting, accessing finance or training.

The Government has announced a number of schemes to help businesses during this challenging time. The Gateway team can provide more detail on each of the schemes and what they mean for you.

We are providing a series of business support updates as they arise and are working with our SCR Response Group and the Local Resilience Forum.

We are doing everything we can to protect our economy, and support jobs and businesses across South Yorkshire during this difficult time.

Please get in touch with us directly by email: growthhub@sheffieldcityregion.org.uk or visit www.scrgrowthhub.co.uk/covid-19-support-for-businesses/ for updates and further help and support.
